Biography | show moreshow less
Edmund Muskie (1914-1996), a navy veteran of World War II, was Governor of Maine (1955-1959) and U.S. Senator from that state (1959-1980). He was the Democratic Party's Vice Presidential nominee in 1968, and the early frontrunner for the Presidential nomination four years later until, during the New Hampshire primary, he appeared to cry while defending his wife from a harsh newspaper attack. As a Senator, Muskie was a principal architect of the landmark environmental legislation of the early 1970s, working successfully to build bipartisan support for it. Muskie concluded his public service as U.S. Secretary of State (1980-1981).
